Ever since we upgraded our Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop to Windows 7 from Vista 32 bit, the computer does not see the HP Officejet 6500A scanner. Prints fine and can send faxes (can't receive faxes due to VOIP phone issue), also makes copies no sweat, but I absolutely cannot see the scanner. I have deleted all the old HP drivers and reinstalled the new ones for Windows 7 to no avail.

I have recently inherited over 60 photo albums from my family as well as my husband's family and need to scan some of these photos so I can reclaim some real estate in my house!

I am NOT a computer expert, so please write your solutions in plain English so I can follow.

You didn't say if you have the E710a or E710n model of the HP Officejet 6500A.

Go here and then expand the Windows 7 section and then see if the instructions there helps.

Where would I find if I have the E710a or E710n model?
Advise what the product number(P/N) and model number(M/N) on the sticker is.

Note: The instructions appear to be the same for both models.
